How to get there
Airport: Sea-Tac Airport: 75.2 mi
Ferry: Coupeville: 6.0 mi
One of the unique aspects of our location on Penn Cove is that if coming from Everett, Seattle, or South, you can choose to take the Mukilteo Ferry and drive 2/3 the way up Whidbey Island, or you can choose to take the Deception Pass Bridge near Anacortes and drive south about 1/3 down the island. Traffic, ferry waits, and your idea of what to see and explore play into your decision on which way to go as both are about equal travel time.
